Title : Multicast Address Translation
Author(s) : J. Crowcroft
Filename : draft-crowcroft-mat-00.txt
Date : 15-Nov-01
Network Address Translation is a technique for reducing the
complexity of address re-assignment. It can also lead to a reduction
in the routing state in the core.
This draft is about using the technique for the same reasons for
multicast. The approach is complementary to IP-in-IP tunnels for
multicast, but avoids the overhead of encapsulation. It has the same
state setup requirements at the edges, as does NAT.

NOTE: The mail server at ietf.org can return the document in
MIME-encoded form by using the "mpack" utility. To use this
feature, insert the command "ENCODING mime" before the "FILE"
command. To decode the response(s), you will need "munpack" or
a MIME-compliant mail reader. Different MIME-compliant mail readers
exhibit different behavior, especially when dealing with
"multipart" MIME messages (i.e. documents which have been split
up into multiple messages), so check your local documentation on
how to manipulate these messages.
Below is the data which will enable a MIME compliant mail reader
implementation to automatically retrieve the ASCII version of the
